Hi Billy,have you tried pushing down on the trunk to take any load off the latch while turning the key? It is possible there is something jamming the latch from the inside.

SOURCE: Ford focus boot lock will not open

try spraying some lithium grease into the latch assembly... Since your latch is releasing the primary catch point and not the secondary, it means the latch itself still works... After using the grease and letting it soak for a few mins, close the trunk and pop it several times and hope it fully releases. If not, you could try putting pressure on the trunk by pulling it open as the key is turned. Don't use WD-40

SOURCE: 2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold

you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

2005 Bentley GT trunk will not lift or close when remote button pushed. Have plenty of battery power.


does the lock unlock function work? if not you need to reprogram the key fob most likely. does the "B" on the boot(trunk) lid open the trunk? if not but the lock unlock function works on the key fob you most likely need a trunk(boot) motor or latch

does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

I accidentally pulled the interior trunk release of 2008 volkswag


Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.

My boot will not open on my XJ40. The latch


If you don't have the trunk key, use the trunk release button in the glove compartment. If you do have the key, you must turn it all the way to the left and then press the button. It should open then. Turn it back to midway and it will stay unlocked.

My key wont unlock the trunk anymore but the remote opener does.


There is a cable that runs from the key cylinder to the latch mechanism. There are clips that hold the cable housing in place, and if one of those comes loose then turning the key just moves the housing without releasing the latch. Check the clip closest to the latch. To get the trunk open drop the back seat, crawl in, and pull on the cable.

It is also possible that the cable is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced -- I assume you will then need to replace the enrite assembly.

Car trunk problem


Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.
Cheers.
